Publisher's Summary

This completely revised and updated edition of Reinventing Yourself, the motivational classic by inspirational author Steve Chandler, features several new chapters, including:

  • What to Do about Your Money Fears
  • Your Career Played as a Game vs. Your Career as a Grind for Survival
  • How Much Ego Do You Need to Succeed?
  • The Hidden Downside of Winning Friends and Influencing People
  • Do You Need a Life Coach or Should You Just Wing It?
  • Does Success Make You Happy or Does Happiness Make You Successful?

You'll learn numerous techniques for breaking down negative barriers and letting go of the pessimistic thoughts that prevent you from fulfilling, or even allowing yourself to conceive of, your goals and dreams.

Chandler's new edition also tunes, polishes, and strengthens the many popular and inspiring chapters from previous editions of this book, making them even more useful and relevant in today's rapidly changing, globalized world.

The old psychological models that focused on past hurts and traumatic memories have given way to exciting new breakthroughs, like Dr. Martin Seligman's work on post-traumatic strength and Dr. George Pransky's work on human beings' innate resilience and well-being. No more fixating on psychic wounds that occurred in childhood. Chandler's new revision looks at the work of both of those pioneers and makes optimism available to people who never believed they could reinvent their old ways of being.

Absolutely fantastic

I read a lot of self-improvement books, and this is a winner!

It will make you act — not just sit around ruminating. The book unveils the secret to the war against a sad life: practice! (Honest!)

Read this book. You will not be sorry.

Will change your life

For me this was the right book at the right time as I had to deal with many personal and professionals storms at the same time most aligned precisely around my 50th anniversary. Reinvention is not finding and adopting a new personality but understanding you never had one in the first place, then what’s left is pure freedom and action.

LOTS of implementable tactics

The ideas in this book are not necessarily new, but are explained in a way that makes it very easy to understand. Maybe it’s ears finally willing to hear, but I just listened all the way through today while cleaning house, and I am putting it back on to listen through again until I go to sleep. This time, I’ll be taking notes! #action

A very very good book with a lot of good insights

I was really hooked after having started this book and I could see many situations in my own life, where I was a victim (in my own mind at least) and I really could identify with the owner vs victim approach.
Well writen and a positive angle, where guilt and blame were not present.
Very pleasant voice and now I understand the high rating.
Also the angel about problems not being something bad, but something to grow on the top off. Great.
Only one small correction: Chandler mention two time Denmark as the country with the highest suicide rate in the World. This in not correct - we a place around the middle - but I understand his point. Even though you have a high living standard like we have in Denmark, and high security it is not a guarantee for happiness.
We miss the "hunger" because of a comfortable life and I often think about the words of Bruce Lee: Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one!
